A gourmet oasis tucked within the historic Eastern Shore village of Trappe. Voted Maryland's Favorite New Restaurant by the Maryland Restaurant Association, Mitchum's is well worth a short trip off the beaten path.
Mitchum's is the showcase for Chef Chris DeLaurentiis' elegantly archetypal steakhouse cuisine, from seven richly flavorful cuts of meat to crisp pommes frites to sautéed sides, created from organic produce harvested at nearby Davoncrest Farm. No less mouthwatering is the seafood, starring Chesapeake Bay soft-shell crabs, jumbo-lump crab cakes, and oysters, available according to the calendar.
A graceful study in cool white linen and warm mahogany, the restaurant evokes the masculine sophistication of its strapping Hollywood namesake, Robert Mitchum, who lived on a local farm for eleven years. His classic black and white films–complete with curvy starlets and subtitles–silently play above the sweeping bar.
An equally fabulous lunch menu is available at Mitchum’s casual market and café, adjacent to the steakhouse.
